Pod People

In this economy, everyone's cost-cutting, even Hollywood. Think how expensive it is to film a movie about a special event - you need a lot of people to fill the seats. And even if the extras work for free, you still have to give them coffee, donuts, and parking. It can really hit your budget hard.
So these days Hollywood is looking for solutions, and what could be better than having your own Crowd-in-a-Box?
Inflatable people can fill stadium seats, creating the impression of a full house.
They have life-like faces, and come in all ethnicities and genders!
They pack compactly into bins and inflate in minutes.
They're legless, so they always stay where you put them.
They don't eat, argue, and don't pester your stars for autographs.
They don't even need porta-potties!

That's hilarious. Who knew?

Nothing surprises me anymore.
Well, okay, that's not true, but THIS somehow does not surprise me.

Still, they have to provide coffee and donuts to the ones who do the inflating and placement, right?

Oh my God, that is too funny! And as a photo stylist, I'm used to the smoke and mirrors. I love how they pack conveniently away in totes to wait patiently for their next gig! And the part about staying put because duh! they have no legs...priceless!

Do they make pod dogs? I might be able to get one of those instead of a real one and avoid the vet bills.

Sounds like a great idea to me.
